CVS Downtown 5k Race Report
2018 CRC Race Series #11
September 16, 2018
Weather: Sunny and 70
First off I wanted to thank everyone who came out for the Downtown 5k this year in Providence. We had 5 men and 6 women enough to score for CRC on both sides!!
Although September 16th gave us our last taste of summer racing for awhile the fast field of runners (with a separate start for the USATF ladies) and quick course with only one hill (thankfully not in the Mt Washington sense) at the end made for some fast times. Wes Mather and Brendan Peltier led the CRC men’s team and both PRed followed close behind by Kyle Coffee, Masaya Ando and Tom Salvon. Meghan Weaver and Cassie Short led the CRC women’s team with Shoko Akabe, Steph Habura and Nuria De Mas for our top 5. Also, big shout-out to Alex Solimano, who ran the Downtown 5K a day after a 16-mile long run! It was a great showing overall by the CRC women’s team, as they outnumbered the CRC men. Congrats to all who ran!
Thanks again everyone, next up is Lone Gull and the fall marathons!
